Intel Xeon E3-1225 v2

20 Reasons why Intel Xeon E3-1225 v2 is better

than the average

1.Faster CPU clock speed
4 x 3.2GHzvs 4.7 x 2.3GHz (the average)
vs 8 x 8GHz (best: AMD Opteron 6220)
2.Notably higher ram speed
1600MHzvs 1416MHz (the average)
vs 2873MHz (best: Samsung Exynos 7420)
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Substantially faster GPU clock speed
650MHzvs 508MHz (the average)
vs 1300MHz (best: Intel Core i7-4770R)
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
4.Significantly smaller semiconductor size
22nmvs 28nm (the average)
vs 10nm (best: MediaTek Helio X30)
A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
5.Considerably higher turbo clock speed
3.6GHzvs 3.3GHz (the average)
vs 5GHz (best: AMD FX-9590)
When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
6.Somewhat newer version of DirectX
11vs 11 (the average)
vs 12 (best: AMD A10-7870K)
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
7.Uses hyperthreading technology
Yesvs No (59% don't have it)
Many of Intel's processors use hyperthreading, which means that each core of the processor can work on two threads at once instead of most processors which work on a single thread per core. This means you can have significant performance gains in certain applications.
8.Has Tri-Gate transistors
Yesvs No (70% don't have it)
An advanced transistor technology developed by Intel that allows lower power consumption and higher speeds.
9.Considerably more L3 cache per core
2MB/corevs 2MB/core (the average)
vs 15MB/core (best: Intel Xeon E7-8893 v4)
More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
10.Sizably higher PassMark result (single)
1868vs 1444 (the average)
vs 2546 (best: Intel Core i7-4790K)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using a single thread.
11.Measurably newer version of PCI Express (PCIe)
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 3 (best: Intel Core i7-4770K)
PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
12.A little newer version of OpenCL
1.2vs 1.2 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Intel Xeon E3-1275 v5)
Some applications use OpenCL to utilise the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
13.Supports ECC memory
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.
14.Has Intel Quick Sync Video
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
This allows very fast video transcoding times, for example when ripping a DVD or Blu-ray to your computer.
15.Has RdRand
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
RdRand is an instruction set used for cryptography.
16.Has F16C
Yesvs No (65% don't have it)
F16C is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
17.Considerably more displays supported
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 4 (best: AMD A10-5800K)
Using multiple displays you can create a larger work space, making it easier to work across multiple applications.
18.More GPU execution units
16vs 15 (the average)
vs 48 (best: Intel Xeon E3-1285 v4)
A graphics processing unit (GPU) with a greater number of execution units can deliver better graphics.
19.Significantly higher clock multiplier
32vs 24 (the average)
vs 47 (best: Intel Core i7-4870HQ)
The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
20.Vastly faster GPU turbo speed
1250MHzvs 1050MHz (the average)
vs 1350MHz (best: Intel Core i7-3940XM)
When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
